    Possibly for some, but for me it was much less (and I didn't play for over 40 years) ... and without the distractions of youth I can focus more on the music and enjoy the music more ... going back to play over and over the songs I enjoy rather than once performed the director took the music from me and put in the file where I'd not be able to play it again and again. Fooled my director(s), I've got my own music now that they can't take away.

    It does. If life was only medicine, I would go crazy... We played a gig in Pittsburgh last weekend, and a surgeon came all the way from Cleveland to hear us play. I sat with him to talk between sets... not once did we talk medicine. That's the way I like it... Had some great music discussion... the true healing art.
